Songs for space
I found a playlist on Apple Music by Buzz Aldrin inspired by space, the moon, the Earth and Mars. This is in a similar vein. What do you listen to watching the stars and moon and wanting to be out there?
- •Elton John - Rocket ManI remember seeing the brilliant Paul & Storm cover this live as a tribute to Neil Armstrong. Still gives me chills.
- •Frank Sinatra - Fly Me To The MoonBuzz Aldrin considers this his theme song. I think he has the right credentials. He was on the moon once. He'll tell you the story at any opportunity.
- •David Bowie - StarmanI love that they included this in the soundtrack to The Martian.
- •The Beatles - Here Comes The SunThe sun is totally a star and I like The Beatles. Especially George songs.
- •Babylon Zoo - SpacemanI was obsessed with this song as a teenager.
- •Quad City DJ's - Space JamSo so dumb but so good.
- •Europe - The Final CountdownHow could I not?
- •David Bowie - Space OddityAlso covered by a man who actually lived in space, Commander Chris Hadfield.
- •Gustav Holst - The Planets : MarsThe entire The Planets suite is gorgeous but I have a special spot for Mars as it was the theme music for one of my favourite games, Mega-lo-mania for the Amiga.
- •The Steve Miller Band - Space Cowboy
